Today is the first day of spring! And while we still have a few more days for March to "go out like a lamb," Patch brings you this handy guide to the farmers markets in the St. Louis area—and the ones closest to Town and Country and Manchester.
This guide indicates the timeframe when each market is open; some in the area are already open. Some don't open for a few more weeks. The idea is to give you a head-start on where you might want to visit when the time comes.
The information is from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's farmers market database, from information provided by the markets themselves.
Do you frequent your local farmers' market and enjoy cooking with fresh foods. Share recipes and tips with a Patch blog.
